"I committed to North Carolina this past weekend," said the 6-foot-0, 205-pound running back with 4.34 speed and a solid track background. "I really like all the players and the coaches. The school also has a really good education for me."
Carey says he does not plan on taking his final visit, which was scheduled to be at Virginia Tech.
"I'm firm on my committment and I'm not going to take anymore official visits."
Carey chose North Carolina over offers from North Carolina State, East Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Syracuse.
